The First National Santa Fe Cordova Branch is a 2,745 sf renovation within an existing building in the Coronado Shopping Center, at the corner of St. Francis and West Cordova. First National relocated from their previous office, in the south building of the Coronado Shopping Center, to meet their expansion needs. The project included partial re-stuccoing, new windows, new mechanical equipment and new lighting.
This branch design is cognizant of the local culture by providing reliable and durable materials and an earth toned color palette, but also integrates contemporary banking concepts which affected the designed layout and improved upon operations and work flow. The layout creates the appearance of a larger space, provides strategic transparency and spaces that provide enough sound privacy to hold client meetings. This branch integrates forward thinking large city banking concepts with contemporary southwest design features which appeals to the local clientele.
